He Tried To Imagine The Sound Of The Color Red

Scarlet Tanager

What happened when the two antennas got married?

Well, the ceremony was kinda boring, but the reception was great!

Interesting Fact: The female Scarlet Tanager sings a song similar to the male’s, but softer, shorter, and less harsh. She sings in answer to the male’s song and while she is gathering nesting material. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Scarlet_Tanager/overview )

    • I was super excited when I came across it, but I wish it was a little bit lower on the tree. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! 🙂

  1. Nice Shot! Good to see your jokes have not improved any! 😉 🙂

    I’ve been doing a lot of research into harmonic frequencies and musical notes lately so i feel confident in letting you (and the ST) know that Red is definitely a harmonic of the note ‘A’ – albeit at about a gazillion times the human audible range of hearing. 🙂

    Light Green is a ‘D’ and Blue about an ‘F#’. The millions of different colour shades we see all fit within the one octave of 8 musical notes (12 tones), as determined by their wavelengths, whereas we can hear around 10-11 octaves of sound notes.

  2. Check out synesthesia, a perceptual condition in which the stimulation of one sense triggers an automatic, involuntary experience in another sense. … Synesthetes — or people who have synesthesia — may see sounds, taste words or feel a sensation on their skin when they smell certain scents.

    • Oh wow that is pretty cool. I will definitely check into it. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing this with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂

      • That’s not Ken Nordine’s best, IMO. In 1957 he recorded “Word Jazz” followed by “Son of Word Jazz” in 1958. They’re both awesome.

        When they were reissued on CD in 1990, Tom Waits wrote this description for the liner notes:

        “Ken Nordine, yea I know that guy. I heard his voice 1000 times, he’s the guy in the bus station that says “go ahead I’ll keep an eye on your stuff for you,” and you see him the next day walking around town wearing your clothes. He broadcasts from the boiler room of the Wilmont Hotel with 50,000 watts of power. I know that voice, he’s the guy with the pitchfork in your head saying go ahead and jump, and he’s the ambulance driver who tells you you’re going to pull thru. He’s the guy in the control tower who talked you down in a storm with a hole in your fuselage and both engines on fire. I heard him barking thru the Rose Alley Carnival strobe as samurai firemen were pulling hose. Yea he’s the dispatcher with the heart of gold, the only guy up this late on the suicide hotline. Ken Nordine is the real angel sitting on the wire in the tangled matrix of cobwebs that holds the whole attic together. Yea Ken Nordine, he’s the switchboard operator at the Taft Hotel, the only place in town you can get a drink at this hour. You know Ken Nordine, he’s the lite in the icebox, he’s the blacksmith on the anvil in your ear.” –Tom Waits, 1990
